In 1686, eighteen-year-old Nella Oortman (Taylor-Joy) knocks at the door of a grand house in the wealthiest quarter of Amsterdam. Full of hopes and dreams, she has come from the country to begin a new life as the wife of wealthy merchant Johannes Brandt (Hassell). But instead of Johannes, she's met by his cold sister Marin (Garai) and their servants (Squires, Essiedu) and quickly realizes that nothing is as it seems in the Brandt household. When Johannes finally appears he presents her with an extraordinary wedding gift: a cabinet that is a miniature replica of their home. It is to be furnished by an elusive Miniaturist, whose tiny creations mirror what is happening within the house in unexpected ways and seem to be predicting and unravelling the future with unsettling precision..

Strange, dark and depressing. Watched all 3 parts because I wanted to see the outcome. Did not end well for anyone.

This 3-episode BBC TV Mini-Series is based on the book by Jessie Burton (which the NVDPL carries in both LPF and F). It is a very unusual story set in seventeenth century Amsterdam. At times it is eerie, dark, sad, and disturbing; however, it is also beautiful and uplifting. Petronella shows remarkable character and strength for a young girl who discovers her husband is very different from other husbands. I wasn't too impressed with some of Johannes's actions but it is difficult not to sympathize with him.

Well, I was expecting better, and was greatly disturbed by content in part one, so did not complete the viewing.
